Place the HCG Patch on clean and dry skin (no oils or moisturizer on that area). Place on the belly away from hair or where it would be rubbed by clothing. Keep the patch on for 3-4 days. Then remove the old patch and throw away and replace with a new patch. Take care when taking off clothes so you don’t pull the patch off.

OK to wear in the shower or swimming, but firmly pat dry do not rub. If in chlorine or pools cover patch with waterproof band aide.

Note for the 1st week only wear two patches (2 X 3-4 days). For the rest of the program wear one patch each 3-4 days.

So that’s 2 patches each 3-4 days for the1st week, then 1 patch each 3-4 days for the rest of the diet time.

Store your spare patches in the envelopes supplied, away from direct sunlight, strong odours, microwaves and computers so they keep their full potency and stay sticky. Don’t refrigerate.


Wear two patches, change each 3-4 days, start the diet from day
1] Wear two patches for the first week, change twice a week.
a] Next week wear one patch, change twice a week, continue to eat 500 calories per day- see details below.

2] Stabilization 1. Three days wear no patch but still eat 500 calories. Weans you off the HCG.

3] Stabilization 2. Next 3 weeks no sugar or fats/oils and no patches. This re-sets the hypothalamus and stops you from putting the weight on again. Also stabilizes your weight loss. See detail below.

4] Diet finished, continue to eat normally and sensibly. And have an active life.

NOTE: Everyone reacts differently to the patches potency, the same as the drops, some need more than others so you can wear two patches at a time every week not just for week one if required.

EXTRA HELP: To start with if you are really hungry (waiting on the HCG to kick in) eat a plate of mashed potato. Don’t add butter or cow’s milk. Use Rice milk it’s as creamy as cow’s milk and tastes pretty much the same. OR have a plate of brown rice with a little no-oil sauce, like soy sauce on it: this is instead of your meat, fish or chicken – it’s much more filling and nutrient dense.


Phase 1 Week One: Wear two patches & change them each 3-4 days. Start the diet from Day 1

This first week is for the HCG to kick in and start working: to take away your appetite and stimulate your metabolism while wearing two patches. Place two patches on your belly and change after 3 or 4 days – depending on your hunger level. Wearing two patches may feel a little stimulating, drink water, rest or walk to balance out; the body is adjusting to the new awesome nutrients going into the bloodstream. If too stimulating (extremely rare) only wear one patch. If you develop a rash beside one patch then wearing two it is too much for you, so only wear one. From day one you will need to commit to eating a strict diet for 3 weeks. Foods allowed shown below and many great and free recipes are available from our website. You can stay on the diet as long you like if you have lots of weigh to lose, the 21 days is a general guide line.

Phase 1 Week Two: Wear one patch and still follow the diet

Continue the diet but with just one patch (two if still hungry). Always wear your HCG patch, don’t have a day where you don’t have your patch on. Use as directed above and via the website and you will have little or no appetite as time moves on. If your patch is loose or dry put some tape over it to keep firm against the skin. The patch may curl up at the edges after a day or so this is normal it’s not supposed to stick like a band aide and have to be ripped off.

During this phase you can expect to lose ½ -2 pounds (¼ -1 kilo) of abnormal fat daily plus inches. That is 20-30 lb. (13 kilos) per month or two. You will see the weight loss weekly and this will inspire you to keep at it. You may want more food (purely because you can’t have it) but you won’t be hungry. Note some people find the scales don’t move as much but you will still be losing fat from all over the body.

Remember nothing tastes as good as skinny feels; don’t ever give up for the sake of taste or habit. How badly do you want to be slender and healthy for life? Say strongly to yourself often – “no poor me attitude resides in my life jack!” And don’t be worried about the scale weight.

Phase 2: Low Calorie Diet – 3 days

Continue to follow the same 500 calorie diet as described in phase two without the aid of the patches. This allows the HCG to completely leave your system prior to re-introducing normal foods back into your diet. This phase also makes your weight loss stable and sets the hypothalamus. You may like to weigh yourself once a month from now on.

Phase 3: Maintenance Phase – 3 weeks

The fun part: For the next three weeks you will gradually re-introduce healthy foods that weren’t allowed in the previous phases back into your diet, until you reach a normal calorie intake level. You won’t be using the HCG patches.
Note you need to keep this stabilization phase of your diet high in starch and adequate protein for three weeks. This means no oils or sugars.

Adaquate Protein & Startch includes: Potatoes. Sweet potato. Rice. Meat, poultry, sea foods, game, a few only unprocessed nuts, all beans and legumes, eggs, cheese, low fat cottage cheese, fruit, vegetables, real yogurt, milk (rice milk is better in every way than cow’s milk). Good quality brown bread. Only eat when you are hungry.

Bad carbohydrates, makes you fat – too much fat & bad starches include: White breads, all sugar, candy, pasta, cakes, overabundance of wheat flours, commercial cereals, sugary soda, sweets, ice cream, butter and oils, all deep fried or takeaway foods etc. Do eat at all; many of these foods are addictive and have destructive trans-fats.

Bad Carbohydrates stimulate insulin and insulin puts blood sugar into fat storage. The secret to keeping slim is to mainly eat low fat, good-carbohydrates for life. Also wheat and sugar are addictive and build yeast imbalances, digestive problems like a leaky gut and toxic build up: Your 500 calorie diet will rid you of these addictions. As you increase your diet to normal levels avoid high amounts of sugars and fats this is the best time to condition the body to a new healthy long-term lifestyle diet.

PLEASE REMEMBER: When on a diet ALL fats are bad fats. Nuts, seeds, all oils, butter, tofu, olives, coconut, cow’s milk etc. Read labels.

Start Maintenance patches at this stage if desired. Wear one patch for 5 days only. Mon-Fri. Don’t wear on weekends. Start a new patch each Monday. See our website for details. One packet of 12 patches lasts 2 months.

Cheating – It is so not worth it. It takes away precious losing time. You may not see the effects of cheating the scale immediately
however you will see it within a few days. You could waste a week of dieting and weight loss for one cheat episode.

Keep reminding yourself it’s a short time to be on a diet. Keep celebrating what you have lost. Keep reading the website for support.


This diet has been proven to work over many, many years and for many thousands of patients via Dr Simmons. It works if you follow it to the letter. You won’t be the only person it doesn’t work for. If you have a bad start – just start again.

Remember, you are only eating 500 calories a day, but you are still getting the normal amount of calories a day you need to be healthy and active, because the rest of your calorie needs comes from your own abnormal and unwanted fat.
After a few days of adjusting to this diet you will feel fantastic, calm, well and will sleep deeply. Also feel happy, successful and motivated, amazing person that you are – as you see daily/weekly weight loss on the scales as well as in your clothing becoming loser.


Don’t panic you won’t be hungry using the Nova Clinic HCG Patches. Also the HCG stimulates your body to use the abnormal and unwanted fat stores as food – so you don’t feel run down. Also as you lose weight your face won’t look haggard, unlike most other diets where you lose good fat. Only eat until full, don’t overeat.

Any amount of coffee, tea, herbal teas. You can also make a soda with mineral water and flavoured stevia. You can use one of your fruits here. eg: 1 chip of strawberries or 1 cup stewed apple. Check out our Recipe Page on

Both meals are the same – choose either 4 ounces (113 kilograms) of meat, chicken, fish or one hardboiled egg – with a big salad or hot vegetables, or soup. The fish, chicken or steak should fit inside the palm of your hand.
OR you can also leave out the fish, meat, chicken, egg and replace with a bowl of mashed potato or 1 cup cooked rice instead. More filling!
Also coffee, tea, herb tea or stevia flavoured sodas.

Note – Not enough protein and starch in your diet will slow your ability to lose weight. Proteins (from all foods not just meat) are used every single day to keep the body going. Because they are used to develop, grow and maintain just about every part of our body – from our skin and hair to our digestive enzymes and immune system antibodies – they are constantly being broken down and must be replaced. If you can’t eat either two servings of meat, fish, chicken or egg per day, then use whey powder as below. You can also get all of your protein (you need only 4% of your diet each day to get adequate) from vegetables and starches.

Whey or Pea Protein Powder – If you too rushed to cook you can blend a cup of water, some of your milk (or use rice milk), some of your fruit and 2 tbsp. of good quality isolate whey powder (pure protein) or pea protein powder (better), instead of your meat, chicken, fish or egg, just for that meal. You can flavour with stevia also, and add ice cubes.

Choose only lean meats and free range chicken. All visible fat must be removed before cooking and the portion should be weighed raw. Cook all meat, chicken or fish on a grill, baking paper or non-stick pan so no fat. Veal or Steak – choose free-range only because they are oestrogen/hormone free. Oestrogen’s given to cattle promote fattening them up. Do not use fat-marbled steak.

Chicken breast – free range and no skin.

No No Fish – no oily fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna, trout or kippers.

Extra stuff – If you have a lot of weight to lose
With our HCG patches, we have found from client’s feedback that you can go as long as you wish since it is hormone free with just the HCG frequency signature triggering the fat release. We’ve had clients go 90 days and lose 100 pounds/45 kilos. Have potatoes or rice very day though so you get all of your nutrients, also take a Vitamin B12 capsule or use our Vitamin B’s patch as well. See our Forum for full details.
But obviously you need to be sensible and take a break from the diet if you feel run down or are just too hungry – your body will tell you when it’s time to stop for a while. You can always start again after a one month break.
You must take adult responsibility for your own health and wellbeing.

Drink plenty of water – Your body hides toxins in your fat cells. When you burn them for calories, you dump those toxins into the blood stream. Water will help flush them out. If you don’t drink water when you detox, as you will certainly do when dieting – you will have headaches and aches and pains as the toxins are not being released from the body/blood stream quickly enough.

Some exercise – We highly recommend a 10-30 minute walk each day. This stimulates your metabolism, helps burn fat and tones your body. Start slow if unused to exercise and build up slowly, you will notice an increase in energy and a sense of wellbeing when using the HCG Patch which will be very helpful and empowering. Also as you lose weight you will feel lighter and it won’t be so hard to move.

A good quality rebounder is very good exercise for everyone no matter their health or fitness level – it is concentrated exercise and stimulates all of your cells. Vibration machines are also very good to move energy and break down fat. Both of these add oxygen to all of your cells. Walking in nature is of course fantastic. Aim to be barefoot on the grass every day to reconnect to nature and to earth and balance yourself.

Morning or weekly weigh in – Each morning/or once a week weigh yourself naked around the same time. Keep a diary of your weight loss. This will help you stick to the diet and also reward you for your effort the day before. Also have some clothes that are too small now, try them on every few days they will soon be too big. Don’t get too hung up on scale weight though, as you diet you are losing fat from all over the body. This incentive will empower you and make you feel excited and stimulated to continue. Some days you won’t lose weight on the scales but you are still losing fat, you can’t not lose weight/fat on 500 calories a day.

Wearing the patch – Wearing the patch at all times is essential. They contain the unique frequency signatures of HCG, thyroid, adrenals, pituitary and liver. Along with fat metabolizes that trigger the hypothalamus [signal centre in the brain] to release fat and help optimize the other glands to function normally, in helping you lose weight.

Wear 1-2 patches for 3 or 4 days, then take off and add a new. If you feel hunger – it means your blood sugar is dropping so rub the patch and make sure its firm on the skin, this bring up your blood sugar. Some people wear two patches at a time for the whole diet, and you can it’s not a problem, but it isn’t necessary and may be too stimulating. Everyone’s needs are different.
Constipation I strongly recommend if you have had years of constipation to do a bowel cleanse or detox or a series of colonics before you start this program.

You can take 1 cascara-Sagrada herbal tablet at night once a week if constipated while on the program. Or eat 6 apples in a day. Eat nothing else for that day. This should get you moving and create a good cleanse. You must drink plenty of water every day to keep regular. You will go to the bathroom much less on this diet as you are eating so small. But if you don’t have regular bowel function, you might not show proper weight loss. Help your body to work correctly and to be in a healthy balance.

Also important Don’t use or eat anything not on the diet. No salad dressings even if they say Diet on the label. No lotions or skin creams that contain food based oil, read the labels. Use a glycerine, or non-food-oil based moisturizer such as baby oil.

Take a vitamin & mineral supplement and a good quality (8-12 strands) probiotic every morning. Keep the probiotics refrigerated. You can buy the supplements from the supermarket and probiotic from a health food shop.

Taking measurements each week – You can weight yourself every day/week but take measurements once a week also. The reason is, if you plateau on losing weight (on the scales) for a few days to a week, which happens to everyone, you will still see inches lost during this time. Record your measurements & weight to compare each week. You can also have some clothes that are too small now and try them on and see them get looser and looser as your diet progresses. Note that if your scales don’t move down for a day or so you will still be losing fat.
